Engaged Core Question
Does anyone have any info, opinions, advice, etc, on the concept of riding with an "engaged core?" This is generally a Tai Chi concept, with some overlap with current weight training trends. In experimenting with the engaged core in swimming and running, I have begun to notice (only now and then, and in a fleeting way) or maybe suspect, that I have a untapped, or undertapped source of power in my hips. When I feel this power, I can tell that it has nothing to do with muscle strength, and supports my belief that weight training is not the key to really tapping it. Does this resonate with anyone? Or speak to some commonly known or accepted cycling concept that I am not aware of?
